How Does Shockwave Work?
As the shockwaves enter the body, they initiate an inflammatory-like response in the injured tissue that is being treated. This prompts the body to respond by increasing blood circulation, stimulating the body’s natural healing process, and breaking down calcium deposits in tendons.
What makes it unique is that it is one of the very few technologies that seems to work best when an injury reaches the chronic state. This shockwave appears to be able to jump start the healing process in chronic injuries and move them back into the acute phase of healing.
